What you make as a Dasher depends on where, how much, and what time of day you choose to deliver. Here is an overview of how Dasher pay is calculated, along with tools to help you track and increase your Dasher earnings, so you can meet your goals.
How much can I earn?
You’ll always earn Base Pay for any delivery. Base Pay is calculated based on the estimated time, distance, and desirability of the order.
Promotions like Peak Pay and Challenges help you earn more per delivery when it’s busy. Challenges let you earn extra money for completing a certain number of deliveries in a set amount of time.
Track your Earnings
The Dasher app shows earning opportunities near you and tracks what you make.
Open the app and tap "Earnings" to see what you make on a particular day, to cash out your earnings with Fast Pay, or to view your Earnings History.
Make the most of your dash
Plan your dashing around mealtimes, weekends, sporting events, and late nights.
After logging in to dash, tap "Promos" to find Peak Pay near you. If you don’t get an order immediately, head toward popular restaurants.
